    I worked at Sport Chalet full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Discounts, variety of products, diverse customers.

    Cons

    Pay, work-life balance, benefits, incentives, promotion opportunities, hours during holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Core values are gone, it's become a Wal-Mart of sporting goods and soon to be a Kmart if not careful.

    Pros

    Employee discounts and thats about it.

    Cons

    No bonuses, lack of training. Managers are never on the same page. No room for growth in the Vegas area, unless you want to transfer to cali or utah and even then its very small.

    I worked at Sport Chalet part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pro deal discounts and flexible schedule if you are in school

    Cons

    No appreciation for hard working employees, no raises, favoritism to employees who dont even do their job, return policy is ridiculous, no consistency with what they want you to do, the only thing management cares about is measurables and will threaten those who don't do good enough to fire them, yet you get nothing for actually doing well. They will schedule part timers full time hours but won't make them full time status for benefits/vacation days. Employees are always in a bad mood because GM sets a miserable and hostile environment. I could go on for days..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employees and don't take your stress out on them in negative ways. Employees would probably sell better if they weren't working in such a negative atmospshere.

    I have been working at Sport Chalet

    Pros

    It's fun to sell sporting goods
    Fairly low stress
    Pro-forms
    Excited around holidays

    Cons

    Poor pay
    Poor career advancement opportunity
    Poor in-store management
    Hour cuts have made job overly demanding; customer service struggling as a result

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return to "being the expert." Your image is suffering as a result of cutting hours so aggressively.
